Under Armour is a name you’ve definitely heard before, but the “performance apparel” manufacturer has a whole new product that combines a lot of different features from some of our favorite projects. There are people that would tell you the coolest feature of this new shoe, the Fat Tire GTX, is the Wild Gripper outsole designed in collaboration with Michelin, inspired by mountain bike tire treads and built with their tire rubber. There are other people that would tell you the all weather, waterproof Gore-Tex upper/membrane is the coolest feature. Those are both excellent and useful features, but our favorite part of these shoes/boots from Under Armour is the BOA closure system. If you’ve never had the pleasure of using BOA closure on a pair of snowboard or ski boots, it basically replaces the traditional lace system with high tensile wire and a click lock system. With these Fat Tire GTX Shoes you’ll be able to traverse field, stream and mountain–without ever having to tie your shoes.

Finding a belt that fits exactly right when your weight fluctuates is impossible–unless you’re wearing a Mission Belt. Mission Belts use a unique ratchet buckle that adjusts every 1/4″, which means a comfortable, easy-to-adjust fit every time. Their full-grain Italian leather collection includes seven options, so there’s a good-looking, high-quality Mission Belt for every occasion. As if that wasn’t enough, $1 from every belt sold goes to their “Mission” of fighting poverty with micro loans through a partnership with Kiva. To date, they’ve loaned over $4.1 million in over 75 countries. Fits perfectly. Fights poverty.
